Rogan says both McGregor and the UFC have missed out on a huge payday by not selecting Nate Diaz’s brother Nick as McGregor’s next opponent.
I think they missed the boat if they want to make the f-cking biiiiig money. I think it’s Nick Diaz versus Conor McGregor. They fight at 170 [pounds]. It’s a great story. I love a great story. Big brother steps in. Come on, son.
During the UFC 207 Media Scrum, White says Nick Diaz has turned down every welterweight fight offered by UFC, including a fight against McGregor. Diaz reportedly turned down the McGregor fight to keep it for his brother, Nate.
Nick Diaz is inside 1 Oak nightclub when McGregor ranted about wanting $100 million to fight Floyd Mayweather.
I Was Already Two-Weight Champion, Bitch. F-ck you!
The veracity of Diaz’s two-weight claim is questionable, While he has previously held the welterweight title in both the IFC and StrikeForce promotions, it is unclear whether he was champion at another weight.
Rogan says McGregor should fight Nick Diaz next
[Welterweight’s] where the money is. It would be amazing. Nick’s on a totally different level [of smack talking]. Nate’s a great fighter and a really tough guy, but even he said after the fight: ‘Shoutout to my brother – the best fighter in the world’. It would be a different experience in there. I want to see that more than anything in life. More than the Aurora Borealis, more than I want to go to Keck Observatory in Hawaii and see the Milky Way.
